HONOR will be adding SpO2 monitoring and remote music control to the HONOR Band 5!
Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about these two new features for the HONOR Band 5!
HONOR Band 5 To Add SpO2 + Remote Music Control!
Here is the short version of this story :
With this update, HONOR is hoping that consumers will consider the Band 5 to be more than just a fitness tracker.
SpO2 Monitoring In The HONOR Band 5
SpO2, which HONOR wrongly calls pulse oxygen saturation, is short for peripheral oxygen saturation.
It is an estimate of how much oxygen there is in your blood, measured using pulse oximetry.
With the 29 September OTA update, you will be able to monitor your SpO2 :
- Select the Blood Oxygen Monitoring option
- Click to start measuring your SpO2
Now, HONOR is clear to point out that this SpO2 monitoring feature is NOT certified, and is thus “not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease“, and should only be used for “personal reference“.
We would like to highlight this, because HONOR’s normal SpO2 values of 90% to 100% is too loose.
- A healthy individual should have a SpO2 value between 96% and 99%.
- If your SpO2 value drops below 95%, you should consider medical attention.
- You should definitely seek medical attention if SpO2 falls below 90%.
Remote Music Control Using The HONOR Band 5
Finally, the HONOR Band 5 will receive the ability to remotely control music on your smartphone with the 29 September OTA update.
After you turn on the Music Control option in the Huawei Health app, you will be able to use the HONOR Band 5 to view and control your favourite music app!
The new remote music control capability will support a wide range of music apps like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube, Shazam, HUAWEI Music. It will work with any Android smartphone, as well as they are running Android 5.0 or above.
How To Get The HONOR Band 5 OTA Update
From 29 September 2019 onwards, you can download and install the OTA update that adds SpO2 monitoring and remote music control using these steps :
- Open the HUAWEI Health app.
- Tap on the Check For Updates option.
- The HONOR Band 5 will update and restart itself automatically.
- The HUAWEI Health app will also update and restart itself.
Once they are both updated, the HUAWEI Health app will be version 10.0.1.011, and your Band 5 will be running firmware version 188.8.131.52.
